  • I put $1000.00 down on a home that I no longer want to purchase. Do I have to buy this property or can I walk away

    I am willing to lose the $1000.00

    Adam’s Answer

    You don’t have to buy the property. But depending on the contract that you signed, you might lose some of the earnest money if you default. Take a copy of that contract to a real estate attorney asap. Good Luck

  • Can you go to jail for cashing someone else check and using the money?

    It was done via bank, just deposited the check into the account and that was it.

    Adam’s Answer

    I agree with the previous answer, not to mention it will likely be a felony charge. You can also end up as a defendant in civil court. Go see an attorney asap.

  • I moved out of my apartment Sep 1 & signed my lease over to my roommate who STAYED, now I am being sued for all sorts of stuff..

    I moved out Sep 1 & got a new apartment on Oct 1 of this year, I am now I am getting things in the mail from a lawyer by the name of Thea Rubin stating the the remaining balance that was NOT paid is going to go to a collection if it isn't paid..I...

    Adam’s Answer

    I agree. You signing the lease over does not change you contractual obligations with the landlord. Practically, if your roommate keeps paying under the lease, there should be no problem, but legally you are accountable for the money due under the lease. Lastly, I don’t know why an attorney would threaten you with sending a file to collection. Usually, it is the attorney that would take the matter to court, not send it out to a collection company that has no power to do anything. You might want to take all the written documents that you have pertaining to this rental unit, and see an attorney in your area. Good Luck.

    I agree. In certain situations you can vacate the previous court order, and get a chance to have your case heard in court. If you decide to file a motion to vacate, make sure you also leave a copy with the sheriff’s office. I strongly suggest you see an attorney asap, but in any case, do no wait. Please remember, Illinois is not a self-help state. The landlord must go thought the sheriff’s department to regain possession.

    Agreed, if you are doing something against the local ordinance, you should receive a formal notice from a government entity, not a verbal one form a friend. Good Luck.

  • Landlord is asking me to replace the entire carpet due to a damaged patch and stains.

    When we moved in the living room carpet had a patch in it already. But unfortunately we did not take a picture of this, thinking a carpet patch is normal. But the proof of this is even today the carpet of closet has a patch and this patch was used...

    Adam’s Answer

    If this goes to court, normal wear and tear is acceptable damage to most judges. Anything past that could result in damages. It is up to the court to determine is the patch was there before you moved in, which naturally is a risk to both sides. Perhaps it would be beneficial to try to negotiate with the landlord? At the end, you might win this case, but regrettably everybody still bears the risk. Good Luck.

  • Hey i need help please let me know please

    i get aboused alot i need help i get tazed really bad by my parent i am 17 years old

    Adam’s Answer

    If what you say is truly accurate, I agree with the other answers. Call the local police. If you do not get help from them, call the sheriff, county prosecutor, or Illinois state police. This might cause you to be removed from your home, or your parent being arrested. Either way get help asap. Good luck.

    Adam’s Answer

    ... I agree. Find an attorney that does foreclosure defense work. Try to do this asap, once a default judgment is entered against you, it becomes more difficult. I know there is a lot of information floating around on the internet, but you really can benefit from a professional opinion. Good Luck.

    Adam’s Answer

    Presuming you complete your Chapter 7, you most of your debts prior to filing Chapter 7 (i.e. loan on the building) will be discharges and you will not have to pay them back, this I’m sure you heard from your attorney. However, so long as you have the title to the building (you are the owner of record), you are responsible for it. For example, just like you still have a right to collect the rent, you are still accountable to the municipality for possible code violations. Until the bank gets the title, you are the owner.
